square-mile city there,. we are one of the most densely populated cities in america, more than new york city. we rank no. 1 in per-capita use of public transportation. we are a vibrant community filled with boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. hurricane sandy was devastating. the hudson river spilled into hoboken from both the north and the south. more than half of the city was flooded. three of the four firehouses and more than 7000 homes were flooded. we estimate the total damage at well over $100 million. thankfully, our main street did not flood and is open for business. even the businesses that did not flood have been severely impacted by one of our principal means of transportation to new york. the train has been flooded and still has not been restored. this is due to the difficulty of getting to and from the city. some were forced to operate at an alternate location as they tried to navigate the insurance got lead. the national flood insurance program is not designed to meet the needs of the urban environment. there is a fundamental unfairness that i respectfully ask congress to tr

. that is not the nation, that is not the basis of the principles of which our soldiers have fought and died for. america has wonderful principles and i'm delighted this motion to instruct focuses on providing the safety net for girls and women in leadership and in education. it is indicated, of course, that this transition will occur, but that the requirement of a road map to ensure the safety and security of girls and women. we have over the period of time in being in afghanistan, the longest war this nation has ever seen, seen the ups and downs. but more particularly the tragedy of having schools burn that were particularly directed towards serving girls. girls turn into young women and to women who want to serve. as we all know the hand that rocks the cradle does establish the basis of civilization. for the democracy of this great nation, i include my support for a motion to instruct for our nation not to lead as it leaves a pathway of democracy for the women and girls of afghanistan. we must provide the protection that they need to help lead this nation and to ensure its democracy, freedom, and just

of america. every time you come to this floor it's a question, why are we here? we are here to do the people's work. let's sit down. get it done. and move forward. instead of filling the agenda however worthy some of those initiatives may be, instead of not along with passing a middle income tax -- th is also reminiscent of a year ago. the president proposed, the house and senate, democrats and repuicans, voted for the payroll tax holiday. the republicans in the house resisted. painted themselves into a corner until they had no choice. the issue had been made too hot for them to handle and they finally had to come around to supporting the payroll tax holiday. and here we are again. 100% of the american people will receive a tax cut when we pass the middle income tax cut. the wealthiest people in our country will receive a tax cut up to their income of $250,000. we are asking them to pay a little bit more for what they make over $250,000 a year. to help reduce the deficit, to help grow the economy, grow the economy. that growth is what is essential. you want to reduce the dicit, create jobs.
